    2008 Boxster S Order Question

    Anyone know what the last three digits mean after the model number in the dealer allocation sheet? I saw 320 listed after 987 (**** 987 320). It would be a nice if this number meant I was getting an 08 with 320hp.

    In your dreams Boxster S only got uplifted to 295bhp this (07) model year. Maybe the Cayman S will get that sort of uplift for 08.

    Re: 2008 Boxster S Order Question

    Yes that would be nice, but that is not the case. The three digit code determines the 987 type: Cayman (987.110), Cayman S (987.120), Boxster (987.310) and Boxster S (987.320).

    The Cayman S and Boxster S use the M97.21 powerplant since 2007, 3.4 litre and 295hp. You have to wait a bit longer for more hp

    Re: 2008 Boxster S Order Question

    Boxsters gets Direct Injection and some cam tweaks to work with that to meet new emission regs for 08 models. A power increase is certain from that.

    The 08 Cayenne's picked up a lot of power from switching to direct injection, so probably 08 Boxsters and Carreras will also.

    Likely also is "dynamic headlights" option for all 987's and 997s - Xenon low and high beams that turn with the steering wheel.

    Re: 2008 Boxster S Order Question

    I think that 320 is well within reason IF Porsche were to implement Direct Fuel Injection across their line in 08. With the US mileage calculation changes in 08 and $4 dollar gas prices in California..adding DFI makes sense. Especially, if DFI has been successful on the Pepper. Of course, a price increase would probably go along with it.

    Thanks for explaining the last three numbers to me. So, do they need to tell me what the spec's are on the car when it's submitted to the factory or do I need to wait until I pick it up in Sept./Oct?

    Re: 2008 Boxster S Order Question

    According to a few articles like the link below, the 2008 Boxster will get the new DFI (direct fuel injection) technology that is in the 2007 Cayenne. Just reporting what I have read. Hopefully it is true.

    Re: 2008 Boxster S Order Question

    all this assumes Porsche don;t hold back the power either mechanically or electronically, direct injection or not.

    Cayman sales down 29% in the UK for the first quarter - not good when its your latest addition to the range !!

    Re: 2008 Boxster S Order Question

    I could totally see Porsche doing that! It's funny how I'd be excited about getting a few extra miles per gallon and then turn around and drop 10k on options.

    Re: 2008 Boxster S Order Question

    Well even if 310hp for the 08 model with direct injection that would be nice... more power and lower fuel consumption...

    Which is why I reckon Cayman will get a power hike with minimum price rise leaving Boxster where it is. They've got to do something to justify the crazy price difference between it and the same powered Boxster...no wonder sales are flagging! 320bhp vs 295 with the current pricing structure makes sense and I'd seriously consider one, but not as it currently stands.
